first basemen who is better?

Postby great gretzky » Sun Apr 25, 2004 3:59 pm

of these guys who is the best lshort-term, long-term option (non keeper)

overbay
hafner
durazo
blake
nick johnson

I have NO idea who to go with whatsoever. So what is the deal with these guys.

I know blake is middling and hafner had a hot start but is young.

Is overbay going to be decent this year? nick johnson?

If Nick can get healthy he can be a hell of a player. He has one of the best eyes in baseball.

Overbay has a chance to be a pretty consitent hitter. He could really turn into a Mark Grace type. I personally perfer Overbay over Blake. Most people will probally disagree with me on Overbay-Blake though.

Durazo has a better eye than Johnson, but Johnson is still a very capable player.

Last year Johnson walked evary 4.63 Abs compared to 5.43 for Durazo. Last year Johnson struck out every 5.67 compared to Durazo 5.17. As you can see the slight edge goes to Johnson in both for who has the better eye.
